Former MP for Ludlow
All MPs could vote remotely through an online voting tool. Votes cast remotely are shown as normal on the TheyWorkForYou voting record.
The option of online voting was removed, and a number of MPs may have been unable to vote because they were not physically able to attend.
The requirements on proxy voting were relaxed, allowing MPs to designate another MP to cast a vote on their behalf.
If an MP votes by proxy, it is effectively exactly the same as if they cast the vote in person and it shows up on their TheyWorkForYou voting record.
MPs are not required to designate a proxy, and may instead pair with an opposing MP to miss a vote. Parliament does not record when two MPs have come to a pairing arrangement, so on TheyWorkForYou, they will both appear to have been absent for the vote.

The third, and the most difficult, is whether we are justified in supporting the introduction of this scheme at the present juncture. My answer to the first question...
I am not discussing amalgamation. I have turned it down as being impossible. It seems to me, therefore, that between these two—loose association without power and amalgamation, both of which are ruled out—there remains only some form of federation. The question is whether this is the right way. Here again 1 answer, yes. I give that answer not only from study of the White Papers, but also...
